How do you italicize something with an underscore in it on Stackoverflow et al? If I try underscores around a word with an underscore, it comes out literally, for example

_blah_blah_ (not italicized)

blah (italicized)

blah_blah (not italicized)

blah (italicized)

Trying with the text tool doesn't work either. It puts a single star on either side of the highlighted word (my third example), which doesn't highlight the word.

So if you can italicize words with underscores, how do you do it?
